platforms represent a transitional state like aol and compuserve? >> there are something struck him of the way social media is operating on the internet today. if you look at the way e-mail or publishing works, they are based on -- if you not like it it it is looking over your whale -- mail, you can set up your own web server and plug into the internet, and it will work. if you do not want some company like wordpress to host your blog, or whatever you are publishing, you can set up your own web server, and it will work. if you look at the way social media is done, it is done in a centralized way. it is owned by large companies like facebook and twitter. this is different. it is not open and it should be did. i wonder whether that is a permanence.
